Hello to anyone reading
My Slimming World Story so far:
I originally joined slimming world in June 2011 with a starting weight of 11 stone 13lbs. It was the heaviest I'd known myself to be. I joined with my mum to lose weight for my sisters wedding which was in April 2012. I was bridesmaid and had already had some not great dress shopping experiences (one in a shop where the assistant was trying to pull a strapless dress over my hips and it wouldn't go!! but that was an awful shop where they didn't have separate changing rooms so the other bridesmaids, my sister, my mum and brother in laws mum could all see which made it even worse!!)
I did really well with getting my stone and a half award (and 2lbs away from my target of 10 stone 4 lbs) 2 weeks before christmas. We had chosen our bridesmaid dresses and been to fitting and mine was actually loose! Then Christmas happened and slowly my weight started going up and down. I never got back to the 10 stone 6 which I was before Christmas.
At the time of the wedding I weighed 11 stone 4lbs and the dress was slightly tight. I was gutted but had only myself to blame.
Me and mum kept going to slimming world after but my weight kept fluctuating.
Then I moved out of home to live with my boyfriend in September. With all the things to do with the move and sort out the new house I stopped going to class. My last weigh in was in October where I was 11 stone 6.5 lbs. I remember coming home to my boyfriend and saying I couldn't put on anymore weight or I wouldn't even have my half stone award anymore!
Needless to say that didn't happen. I stopped following the plan completely having junk food every night (and not just small amounts), eating a lot of convenience food like pizza and oven chips and started eating bread again.
Roll on a few months and I hate seeing myself in the mirror. My clothes are tight and look awful on me, especially compared to last year.
I went back to slimming world on Wednesday for a new start. I didn't want to use my existing card and be told I had a gain of x lbs, i'd rather be told a new starting weight.
So my new starting weight is 12 stone 2.5 lbs. I worked out that this is a gain of 10 lbs since October
I've started this diary to hopefully keep myself in check and motivated.
